I ordered a .190h x .135w front sight from Dawson. I like the SFX/Rival guns with irons.
Beware of Dragons. For you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

I see Classic Firearms has marked up the Dark version $50. I guess it’s all about supply and demand, but that’s still a bit shady.I saw i t on CF for $899. That IS MSRP....

It definitely recoils less but its a little hard to compare fully because to me the grips are as slick as a used car salesman. I'm in the process of 46/70 gritting them right now and will probably do grip tape on the left side of the frame above the grip panel. Not sure about how to approach the front strap yet. With a proper grip surface, I can see this thing being nice!Just got back from the range and you're right, the frame is so damn slick!

I also tried the heat gun on the holster and it appears to have been almost miraculous in making this gun go in and out of my polymer Rival holster! Still more to come on that as I fully test it, but early returns are extremely promising! Thanks for that tip!

ProGrip works good and I'll find which grip module works for me then go from there. I can't wait for the LOK grips/Palm Swell Bogies! Gun arrives this week.I don’t mean my hands slip on the Talons, I mean the Talons slip on the gun when it gets warm out. The glue gets melty.
There's a guy on the Enos channel that changed everything on his steel Rival and is not happy with his results saying he now prefers the poly gun to the steel gun. I wrote my process of how to make the gun "yours". I prefer guns in the 41-43oz range. Fun ride!
